Health Psychology, MS

USciences takes you deep inside the questions at the hub of health psychology: how does physical health affect state of mind? In what ways do thoughts and behaviors influence mental and physical wellness?

Select from a thesis-option—with rigorous courses based in applied experimental psychology— preparing you to pursue your doctoral degree.  Or a non-thesis track, where you will thrive in health-related research and be prepared for clinical research coordination, health communications, medical school, public health programs, or additional graduate study with a clinical focus.

Courses cost $1,000 per credit and the program is typically completed in a year and a half.
